Drink pairing tips

  • Enjoy soba noodles with Sake

    For an elevated experience, pair your soba noodles with Sake. This combination works particularly well because this rice wine brings out the true flavors of the dish.


  • The perfect complement to pork katsu


    Experts suggest pairing a pork katsu with a glass of Pinot Noir, a popular red wine.


  • Pair Chenin Blanc with Wagu beef

    When considering how to best enjoy your Wagu beef, we would highlight how well a glass of Chenin Blanc complements the dish as it fights the fattiness with acidity.
